This weekend I am thankful for those who sacrificed their life for me. They may have never met me, but they did it any way. I am thankful for those that came before; their great sacrifice made a way in this country for me.

This weekend my heart goes out to the children who sacrificed their parents, for the wives who learned all too soon what their vows really meant, and for grieving parents whose dreams for their son or daughter would never be.

This weekend I am remembering those who answered the calling from the red, white and blue, and paid the ultimate price.

“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”                  John 15:13
